Re: Spoon carving *PIC* ()

The hatchet looks good to me.

I'm thinking about remaking the handle on mine. Its curves are a bit less than optimum in a couple places, but I think the guy who made it knew what he was doing with the head. It was hand forged from an old farrier's rasp.

I'm still finessing the handle of the spoon knife you gave me.

I have questions on the third pic in your first post, of knives and hones in a MAYA cigar box: What do you use to charge the cylindrical hone that you have stowed in the cover? FeO? The flat hone is obviously loaded with Cr2O3. The wine cork is a nice touch, but the resolution is not good enough to read it from here.
